Nap and Nod – 12 Adorable Baby Quilts by Myra Harder
Myra teaches you how to do plush applique, curved seams, and monogrammed lettering in her book, Nap and Nod. Although you will find hexagons and seemingly complicated patterns in her book, they really are simple and easy to make. The one below would make a great baby gift; you can put either the length and weight of the baby or you can incorporate the birth date.
I like how she uses monogramming in her quilts. It gives them a more personalized touch, in my opinion.
For all you modern quilt lovers, this next one will “allow” you to play with your quilting to make it unique. I love how she uses the chevrons for water around the cute duck.
